BWW Blog: Emma Mueller - Imagine
by Guest Blogger: Emma Mueller - Sep 26, 2016

I was never one to sit still. I always tap a foot in the air while I'm sitting cross-legged. I twirl my pen while taking notes in a lecture and make typing motions with my fingers while trying to figure out what to write. But I surprised myself. I have done more sitting still in the last week than I have in my entire life, and it was nothing less than enlightening.  (more...)

BALLET CONCERTO: South Florida Classical Ballet Pioneers Retire After 55 Years
by Isabel D. Almaraz - Sep 15, 2016

Ballet Concerto School in Miami, FL will close after 55 years. One of the oldest and arguably one of the highest quality classical ballet schools in the region, Ballet Concerto opened its doors in 1961 and subsequently Miami's first professional ballet company, Ballet Concerto Company, in 1964. The school produced some recognizable names, most notably Fernando Bujones, and the company set a precedent for classical ballet in the area by bringing the most extraordinary ballet artists of the twentieth century to South Florida for the first time. Guest artists included Rudolph Nureyev, Carla Fracci, Cynthia Gregory, Natalia Makarova, Ivan Nagy, Gelsey Kirkland, and Alexander Gudonov to name a few. Ballet Concerto will be remembered as a key player in the development of arts and culture in South Florida, especially within the Hispanic community. Artistic Directors Sonia Diaz and Martha del Pino, who defected from Ballet Nacional de Cuba, where they danced alongside Alicia Alonso and under the direction of Fernando Alonso, implemented and maintained the rigorous classical curriculum that Cuban ballet has since become known for. There is no question of the void left by the closing of this Miami establishment, mostly in the heart of the three generations, and thousands of students who studied and danced at Ballet Concerto and in the memory of those who witnessed the evolution of the cultural arts in Miami between the 1960's and 1980's, when the school and company were at its peak.

BWW Review: The Stirring New Musical COME FROM AWAY Plays Ford's Theatre
by Jennifer Perry - Sep 11, 2016

Featuring a book, music, and lyrics by the married Canadian duo of Irene Sankoff and David Hein, Come From Away explores a subject area that's bound to bring up some painful memories for some. It's a September 11th musical, but not in the way you might expect. It's not about the towers, the Pentagon, or even really the loss of life. it is a story of a community bonding together to embrace passengers on the 38 planes that were diverted to Canada - specifically Newfoundland - when the U.S. Government closed American air space for the first time in U.S. history. It's one of those untold stories that is practically perfect for an original musical. (more...)

BWW Feature: AntiGravity Orlando & Red Fish Theatre Team Up for Surprising & Sexy ROCKY HORROR
by Matt Tamanini - Oct 20, 2016

With a week and a half until Halloween, all theatre lovers know that can only mean that its officially ROCKY HORROR season! So, bust out your leather, fishnets, and platform boots and practice all of your favorite one-liners, because no matter where you live, there is likely a theatre company putting on a production close by.

Dr. Lauze Volk Offers Five Tips for Eating Healthier and Stressing Less
by BWW News Desk - Oct 19, 2016

We are entering a stretch of holidays where there's the opportunity to stress out about food. Halloween's candy corn is often followed by a Thanksgiving feast (or two) that ushers in a month's-worth of cookies, cakes and candy. Don't stress. Central Kentucky's Dr. Lauze Volk, FAAP, FACP, says managing your eating this time of year is all about choices. Dr. Volk owns Lexington, Kentucky's Libelle Aesthetics & Weight Loss Center and has been practicing medicine since 1998. Based on common questions from The Dozens of patients she sees weekly, Dr. Volk offers five tips to end 2016 on a healthy, stress-free note: 1. Know your goal. Do you want to lower your cholesterol, fit into your favorite jeans by 2017 or simply feel better? Knowing your goal gives perspective and creates accountability. When you reach your goal (or make steps forward), take a moment to pause and celebrate. 2. Don't stress about eating healthy. It's OK to have cheat days. 'I don't diet, but I make healthy choices,' explains Dr. Volk. 'I eat pretty much everything I want, but in smaller portions. For example, I love fries, but I'll only eat a few, not the whole carton. If you go overboard one day, shake it off and approach the next day with a guilt-free stance.' 3. Create a healthy balance by avoiding 'family style.' You are likely to eat more than you would like if you place large portions on your plate. 'My children don't eat healthy, but I offer salads and healthy options so they become familiar with adding them into their lifestyle. I have found baby carrots to be a great vegetable option that kids tend to like,' adds Dr. Volk. 4. Road Warrior? It can be challenging to eat healthy while traveling. Dr. Volk suggests packing bags of snacks that can easily be thrown into your bag or purse. Nuts, apple slices, grapes, string cheese, and nutrition bars travel well and are smart choices. 5. Remember, each day is different. Don't ruin your current day by thinking about yesterday. Dr. Volk suggests, 'You don't need yesterday; today, you will try to be better. Eating health is a constant battle, the process and goals are what you have to keep in mind. Instead of stressing or feeling guilty, go for a walk!' Dr. Volk opened Libelle Aesthetics & Weight Loss Center in February 2016. The Libelle team helps patients find the appropriate individualized treatment for their aesthetics and weight management needs. The medical spa offers treatments for all skin types ranging from those to treat acne, to microdermabrasion, body sculpting and laser hair reduction. For weight management, Dr. Volk oversees the hCG rapid medical weight loss program that targets problem fat around the abdomen, hips and thighs. The complete list of services is online. About Libelle Aesthetics & Weight Loss Center - The Lexington, KY.-based Dr. Lauze Volk, FAAP, FACP is a Medicine-Pediatrics trained physician with a specialty in Perinatal Medicine. Dr. Volk opened Libelle Aesthetics & Weight Loss Center in early 2016. The medical spa offers a full range of aesthetic treatments as well as weight management programming. More on Libelle Aesthetics and Dr. Volk may be found online and by calling 859.264.0006. (more...)

by Guest Blogger: Samantha Tirrell - May 6, 2016

This week over at the Theatre Institute at Sage, we staged Backbeard's big visit to the tailor shop, where two ostentatious tailors are given the fashion challenge of their lives -- Backbeard, who has been restricted by the Pirate Council to wearing only clothing without color, needs new clothes after his pants rip during his birthday fight. The tailors give him just that, and they send the colorfully-clad pirate on his way with a little pink pig to replace his missing parrot. Challenge accepted and conquered. (more...)

BWW Review: New Epic Theater Wows with the Strikingly Beautiful THE NORMAL HEART, to be Continued with Shakespeare's CORIOLANUS
by Jill Schafer - Mar 30, 2016

In just their second season as a theater company, New Epic Theater is tackling not one but two challenging and not often performed political plays with THE NORMAL HEART and CORIOLANUS, performed in rep (something that's also not often done). It's an ambitious undertaking for any theater company, much less a young one. But in this short time New Epic has already established themselves as a company that does striking work, both visually and emotionally. The first half of this pair of plays opened last weekend, a strikingly beautiful and devastating production of the 1985 Off-Broadway play THE NORMAL HEART about the early days of the AIDS crisis. Friends, this is a piece of theater not to be missed. The Normal Heart returns on April 7, but in the meantime you can see the other piece of the puzzle, Shakespeare's CORIOLANUS, this weekend, as I will be. Director Joseph Stodola and New Epic Theater have a unique vision, one that deserves to be seen. (more...)
